Golf Garden is an above average executive course. The fairways are in very good shape, but the greens are very slow. The layout is nice and idea. My wife and I play the 9 holes and rented clubs. It is economical, quiet, interesting to play, and well managed. The two par 4’s are Ok and the balance are interesting par... More

Well maintained, nice setting, reasonably priced. This course was challenging for us because we don't golf much and put many balls in the water. Which there is water near most holes keeping you on your game. Friendly staff too.

This was a fun course for our whole family. It was laid out nicely and very lush and green. Not at all cheesy like some mini golf places can be.

My friend and I wanted to swing a few clubs (especially me after back surgery). The course was in very good shape. It is a fun time for those who want to go out and enjoy a morning or afternoon. The people were very nice and friendly. Obviously, the course was very short because it's a par 3. I thought... More

We attempted to go to the big family entertainment center in Destin and it was so crowded we never even turned in. We went to The Golf Garden instead and are so glad we did. The young man working at the counter, Matt, was DELIGHTFUL. Funny, personable and so welcoming. While the putt putt course doesn't have a lot of... More

The mini golf opens pretty early, on account of this place being attached to a regular golf course. The mini golf is laid out like a regular golf course, with water hazards, sand traps, and "the rough." There aren't any windmills or other similar obstacles. We had a great time, and we really love the shade for the heat of... More

This is not a goofy golf, just miniature golf. It was 20 minutes cooler than the next option and was $5 before 5pm - the clincher for us. The bonus was the shade - half of the holes are shaded. It was quiet the day we went, but the staff was still friendly and nice.

Went here for their 18 hole putt putt course. Didnt want to travel all the way to other more crowded places closer to Destin, even though it was slower and more crowded than I expected. Challenging course and more like a real golf putting feel despite a few obstacles you typically see for putt putt. Even down to the mini... More

Nice place to hit golf balls. Manager was nice. Didn't have time to play the par 3 but looks like a nice place to play. Pitching range was well groomed and played well

We decided to stop by and play mini golf and it was okay, but nothing great. The one thing that bothered us was that the holes were too small for the balls to fall into easily. Sometimes the flag just blocked it. Super fun night, but it is what it is.
